We believe when nonprofits run like a strategic, successful business, more energy, passion and budget gets to the actual mission. You deliver stronger impact to the people & communities you serve by working smarter, not harder.
NLI is an affiliate of the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy, and brings you its highly researched, developed and respected "Cause Selling" curriculum for best practices in all areas of fundraising. NLI specializes in all board-related needs, from governance training that resonates with both long-standing and new board members, to strategic planning, succession planning and retention, to evaluations for board and/or staff. We serve as a neutral liaison between board and staff to help faciliate concensus, and lead your board retreat. Every NLI session can be customized to fit your specific needs.
NLI services are extremely affordable for even small nonprofit budgets. Because we're strategic about how we operate, you get world-class, experienced consultants -- at a rate your budget can easily handle.
NLI faculty deliver a powerful combination of proven national business experience plus intense nonprofit board service. Let our seasoned, passionate professionals help you do MORE good!
Trends Tuesday: Is your nonprofit using donor data-mining? If not, you may be missing out on the money trail, says @Chris Caputo of Agile Element and #GivingSpirit. “It's time to shift the way we search for donors. Donor data-mining allows us to really get to know our donors and find potential donors, to maximize every donor relationship.” #TrendsTuesday #NonprofitTrends #NationalLeadershipInstitute #NonprofitTrendTalk #donordatamining #maximizedonorrelationships
Start the new year on the right foot & practice self-care by discovering and implementing ideas that work for your lifestyle.

Signs and Solutions to Avoid Job Fatigue” was to “Build a support system for yourself with those who can discuss your problems and help look for solutions. Don't just air gripes - look for solutions!” #newyear #resolutions #selfcare #support #findsolutions #leadership #NationalLeadershipInstitute #doyou #findyourway
